You may have heard of a very popular cannabinoid commonly referred to as CBD (aka cannabidiol). CBD is manufactured from the hemp plant and has low levels of THC but many health benefits.
There is another cannabinoid on the market that works just as well, if not better that CBD – it is called CBG (cannabigerol). The CBG flower is a hemp flower that is highly valuable since CBG is so hard to extract. CBG flowers are especially bred and harvested to produce the most amount of CBG possible.

What does CBG do?
CBG binds to cell receptors in the body called CB1 and CB2 receptors. Your body naturally produces endocannabinoids which themselves bind to these receptors as part of the body’s internal messaging systems. By using these receptors, CBG is able to produce its health-supporting effects.
What are the benefits of CBG ?
CBG is good for supporting a wide range of health systems, including mood, energy, sleep patterns, and muscle and joint function. CBG, or cannabigerol, may also help modulate the paranoia-inducing effects of THC in marijuana users.
Does CBG get you high?
CBG flower won’t get you stoned. The cannabinoid in marjiuana that causes the drug’s “high” is THC. The other cannabinoids in the plant, including CBG, do not give a “stoned” or “high” feeling when used. In fact, some marijuana users report that CBG can counteract the negative effects of marijuana in users who have overindulged.
